Scott was a pleasure to work with as our wedding videographer. From our first meeting with him to sending us the final cut, he was always professional and worked quickly. The video was fantastic! It’s been nearly two years after our wedding and we still receive compliments regarding how amazing our video was made. We highly recommend Scott and his services!
Scott Hayes, as a man, is so much more than a filmmaker- he is a joy to be around, the person you want to share your love with, thereby multiplying the happiness of a wedding day. He knows how to make anyone feel beautiful and handsome and special. He is capable of bundling an entire lifetime of multiple relationships into a narrative- essentially a teller of stories, weaving magic into the fabric of his film-making. I am so grateful for the dedication he brings to his craft. I know the film that Scott created is more than about my wedding-it is about a lifetime of relationships. It is these golden memories of a beautiful August day that I can hold in suspense, for life is not always as we wish, shortly after my wedding, my husband’s father was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer; however in this film I can always hold him, my father-in-law, in the light of his health. I am forever grateful to Scott for helping us to gather these memories, to frame many lives in a video- to remember long after things we hold dear cease.
Scott Hayes production did photography for our wedding in July and they were absolutely wonderful to work with! From the beginning with engagement pictures all the way through the rehearsal dinner and wedding , he made our wedding feel so special. He made us feel that we were the most important thing at that time which was so awesome during such a special time in our lives. He was very mindful of what we wanted in our pictures and is extremely creative. And not to mention he had our edited pictures back to us in NO time at all!!!! I am so thankful for all the moments he captured through our journey to marriage! Thank you so much Scott Hayes Productions for all your hard work and time.

Once we had decided on getting video footage of our wedding day, we were put in contact with Scott. After an introductory phone call, it was very clear how passionate and committed Scott is to his work and to making each video special for his clients. We are so thrilled with the way our video turned out, and it has become one of our favorite memories from our wedding! The quality of the video is amazing and the final product was well beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend using Scott Hayes for capturing any special day!
Scott did such an amazing job at our wedding I’m beyond words! He and his team were everywhere and captured all the right moments at all the right times. He’s very down to earth and just great to work with. I didn’t feel posed at all and everything just felt so natural – the end results looked that way too. We wanted images of us – and our guests – laughing, wiping away tears, making silly faces, eating, drinking, dancing and expressing happiness, and that is precisely what Scott and the team gave us. His emphasis on genuine emotion, rather than staged shots, is what truly sets him apart from other wedding photographers. I’m so glad we chose Scott. Friendly, responsive and professional. Thank you for being awesome, Scott!
Scott was the vidographer for my son’s wedding on March 2, 2013 here in Lexington. It was an amazing day for all of us. He followed the couple and wedding party around for several hours to different locations proir to the wedding as well as taping the ceremony and events at the receptions. His work is outstanding. The 14 minute movie he made was extraordinary and I will treasure it for the rest of my life.
I have just found your e-mail address on your website, and don’t know how I missed it before, as many times as I’ve now been to the site! I am Jason Beckman’s mother, and your video of Jason & Hillary’s wedding at the Mansion on May 26 is just breathtaking, lovely and awesome beyond words.
You say in your summary that your goal is to capture the magic and emotion of the day and the essence of the couple’s love, and you magnificently achieved that. I have watched this now countless times, in many different times of day, and each time is like watching it for the first time. It swells my heart and fills my soul with joy for my son and his wife, and gratitude and pride in such a lovely event. I have shared their wedding highlight on your website with many of my friends and neighbors, and everyone is awed by your talent. Many have commented that they feel they are watching a movie, I have to say it is more beautiful than any movie I’ve ever seen.
You are right in that each wedding has a unique feel, and one can watch your video of Jason & Hillary’s wedding day and know exactly what their day held. It was beautiful, spiritual, exciting, so emotional and joyful for all, and anyone who watches your production can be present in that day and feel that love and happiness over and over again.
God has blessed you with a great gift, and I thank you for putting it to such wonderful use and sharing it with others. Your gift will be a gift to me throughout the rest of my life. I will treasure this video always, you did indeed capture forever on film one of the most precious memories of my lifetime.
God bless you.
I can not thank you enough for the WONDERFUL video you did for my daughter, Heather’s wedding. It was so beautiful and moving. I especially loved the way you did the song in memory of her father. It was so moving. I cried and laughed and enjoyed it so much. I am so thankful we had you to video her wedding. It is priceless. Pictures are wonderful too, but this was just icing on the cake to any wedding. I will treasure this all of my life. Thank you again.
